Anaba Chardonnay - 2007

Anaba Chardonnay

Winery Story

On tranquil summer days, as golden sun kisses the valleys and hills of vineyards in Sonoma, unique air currents bring cooling breezes inland... (more...) from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. Wafting softly, with some gusts and gales, they glide through the vineyard rows. As they encounter steeper slopes and drift upward, they become anabatic winds. Soaring glider pilots rely on them for flight. We treasure them for the coolness they impart on their journey — a gift of nature that makes the vineyard more temperate and slows the ripening process, producing robust flavors and distinctive varietal characters in our grapes.

Nice fruit and oak flavors but acidity and alcohol come on a little strong.

Medium bodied and full of acidity and a bit of a hot finish. More oak and acidity than I typically like.

Light golden yellow in color, totally translucent. Overt oak notes on the nose; racy acidity on the sides of the tongue, and slightly hot on the finish. I was unfortunately underwhelmed.
